There are not many "french" style zero lot communities in either location. I know of one community in the Collierville area that would be considered a zero lot community and it has new homes available in the mid $400,000 range. To my knowledge there is not a zero lot community in Germantown with french style homes in it. What you will find there are beautiful zero lot communities that tend to have traditional styles. This is true of most of our areas and style the south tends to stay traditional. Keep resale in mind and if you can possibly find something that isn't too different it will sell faster when the time comes. Try to purchase a home that will have "universal" appeal and not limit potential future buyers to a particular style if possible. Trends come and go but traditional seems to last when it comes to homes. Good Luck on your search and please let me know if you need any other questions answered.
This is all dependent on your price range! -I could send you some information if you like, just let me know, Most of Collierville is pricey, bec. it is newer, Germantown has all ranges! the older is less, the newer is more!
